So it seems pretty useless honestly.
It's so you can see the whole week on the calendar.

That's exactly what I was thinking with the 16:9 aspect ratio. Useless for YouTube. They should have gone 4.3" screen with the 3:2 ratio.

They could've at least made the camera take pictures that fill up the whole screen. That's just garbage IMO

the people who are reviewing them do it for a living, which means they are professionals. professionalism is a form of expertise. im willing to take their word for it, unlike all the amateurs in this thread

People are so fawking dumb for camping out for hours, hell even days for this phone. I preordered the phone 3pm EST on the 14th, and when I got back home today, it was at my door.

What a bunch of suckers....


This is my first Iphone and I'm in




Anyone else going no case and screen protector? Your thoughts?
